romney started this campaign, he was selling himself as the turnaround expert. he had an economy in shambles that helped that argument. here's the latest nbc news/washington journal, marist poll. in the battleground states of north carolina, nevada, new hampshire. nevada, we should note, housing crisis at its worst there. unemployment at its worst there, voters are split, though, on who's better at handling the economy. we're starting to see the trend in other swing states as well. why is this? why are voters now saying, well, you know what, despite the last four years, i think the should be could be the guy who can turn this thing around. >> well, mitt romney never effectively, at least not yet, was able to articulate a way they could turn the economy around. we still have a couple debates. i still think 38 days before the election or something like that. but mitt romney didn't make that argument. and he didn't make it in those swing states. and that's because mitt romney played defense a lot of the first half of this year. whether it was in the primaries or in may, when the primar

obama more than mitt romney to turn the economy around. this really isn't looking like the election anyone expected. so what happened? the predominant theory seems to be that mitt romney is an inept candidate, his repeated gaffes have set him back against a weak incumbent. that may be true. the facts suggest something deeper and more important going on. the economic recovery may be a bit morrow bust than we all assumed. the number of jobs created from march 2011 to march 2012 was underestimated by 380,000. taking those new jobs into account he has overseen a net positive 125,000 jobs added to the economy even if you take into account the massive job losses from the financial crisis at the start of his term. on friday the university of michigan's consumer confidence index reached its second highest level in five years. joining us to talk about this is ro khanna, author of "entrepreneural nation: why manufacturing is still key to america's future." deputy secretary in the obama congress. great to have you here. >> thanks for having me. >> we know the headline numbers. gdp growth is do
